A man gives middle finger salute as the US President arrives in UK

US President got an offensive welcome in London this afternoon after a man video himself sticking his middle finger up at the US President. The gesture – which seemingly contradicts Trump’s earlier statement that Brits like him ‘a lot’ – was directed at the president’s motorcade as it traveled through central London.
Miguel Santana da Silva tweeted a video of himself giving a middle finger to the parade of vehicles with blacked-out windows, which was led by Trump’s armoured limo nicknamed The Beast. Trump gets a big welcome to London.
He wrote: ‘Didn’t expect to catch comrade Trump and his filthy motorcade worming by Camden Sainsbo’s bus stop today. Here’s a London welcome for an orange waste man.’ Trump earlier declared that he was very popular in the UK ahead of his visit to these shores. The US President said his right-wing views on immigration appealed to the British public and he was unbothered by the planned protests.
Speaking in Brussels, shortly before boarding a plane for his four-day visit, he proclaimed: ‘They like me a lot in the UK. I think they agree with me on immigration. I’m very strong on immigration.’ But Miguel, who was born in Portugal but has lived in the UK since he was 12, disagreed with the president’s claim. The 28-year-old, from Kentish Town, told the London Evening Standard his finger ‘came up by instinct’.
He added: ‘Everything his rotten administration stands for and has done up to, and since has been nothing short of sickening. ‘My mother lives in Nevada and is currently struggling as a single parent fighting Stage four cancer. She’s been in constant treatment programmes – where the bureaucratic battles to stay afloat and insured are a living nightmare. Miguel swore at Trump’s procession as it drove past him in Camden earlier today.
The American Dream has been a dying concept ever since reality star Trump took office.’ The video, filmed on Camden Road today, has racked up thousands of likes since it was posted on Twitter. Tens of thousands of people are expected to protest Trump’s four-day tour of the UK tomorrow, with one protest expected to see around 70,000 people. Trump and Melania arrived at Stansted Airport today and will attend a black-tie dinner with Theresa May, before meeting the Queen in Windsor tomorrow.
